The British gymnasts led qualification on three of five events on Thursday as the Osijek World Challenge Cup began in Croatia.

The annual FIG World Cup event attracted nearly 150 gymnasts from 42 nations looking to prove themselves in front of the judges and their countrymen before next month's world championships in Glasgow.

Two-time Olympic medalist Louis Smith impressed on pommel horse, earning the high score of the day, 15.500. Smith, the current European champion on pommel horse, amassed a 6.9 Difficulty score to place well ahead of his four nearest rivals — Croatia's own Robert Seligman, Ukrainians Oleg Vernyayev and Andrii Sienichkin, and Belgian Donna-Donny Truyens — all of whom scored 14.900.

Great Britain's Ashley Watson took the top spot on parallel bars with a much narower lead, scoring 15.050. Brazilian Caio Campos took second (15.000) while Japan's Kenta Chiba qualified third (14.950).

Vernyayev, the world parallel bars champion, grabbed the last spot to qualification in his third event of the day. Vernyayev, who placed 17th on floor exercise, is also in the qualification lineup for still rings and vault.

Japanese newcomer Rikii Hoshino qualified first on men's floor exercise (15.250), topping Slovenia's Žiga Šilc (15.050) and Lithuania's Tomas Kuzmickas (14.850).

In the women's competition, Great Britain's Ruby Harrold led the qualification on uneven bars (14.200/6.3 D). Finland's Annika Urvikko qualified second (13.500) over Cuba's Marcia Vidiaux (13.250).

Vidiaux bested the field on vault, averaging 14.925 to qualify first over Slovenian veteran Teja Belak (14.225) and Chile's Franchesca Santi (14.175).

Qualification competition in Osijek concludes Friday with the remaining events.
